You wake up and open your window to warm air and clear-blue skies. Barely a single cloud  – not surprising considering Arequipa enjoys 300 days of sun every year.

"Volunteering in a #healthcare system so different from the UK challenged many of my preconceptions about health and social care."

"Working in Dar es Salaam is an eye-opening and life-changing experience. The city is home to two very different hospitals providing wide-ranging experiences. Working side-by-side with people of a different culture, having to treat patients whilst negotiating through a language barrier, is difficult to describe," says Heather about her nursing elective in Dar es Salaam.

An animated simulation of how measles spreads — and how under-vaccination undermines the herd immunity effect on which disease eradication campaigns rely.

If you take 10 communities and run a simulation, it’s easy to see why we need as many members of the ‘herd’ as possible to get vaccines – before it’s too late

I attended my elective placement in Pokhara, Nepal in Feburary 2013 as a radiography student. The experience was one of the most wonderful and unforgettable that i have ever had. The people i met, the things i saw, the emotional roller coaster of working in health care in such foreign conditions and the food. Goodness me the food is worth the trip alone. From the day i rung up enquiring about doing an elective with work the world to the day i stepped off the plane returning home from an amazing experience i am happy to say the whole process with work the world was as smooth and wonderful as i could ever hope for. I never had one question unanswered and never once felt like i was without support. If you are a student or healthcare professional who is considering this kind of elective, all i can say is do it. You will not regret it.

Mendoza, Argentina I have learned is that healthcare is specific to the culture and funding for healthcare of the country. I was in this placement to experience and live the nurse’s role in Argentina; not to judge, intervene, or change the way healthcare is provided. I came into this placement with an open mind, willing to learn the nurses’ daily routines and functions, as well as to be a part of the team. In the end, all healthcare practitioners, regardless of the country, have one goal in mind: the patient. I left my heart, sweat, and tears in this ward; with the nurses, patients, and family members of the patients thanking me for the work I was doing. Goodbyes were extremely tough, but I left Mendoza proud of the work I have accomplished and the experience I gained at the hospital, the new friendships I have formed, and with the thought of knowing that nursing, and the bettering of this profession, is exactly what I should be doing with my life.
